The Philadelphia Folk Festival is now in its 58th year! Since its inception in 1961 it has been operated with the help of 2,500 dedicated volunteers! The event is unique in that it is presented by a 501(c)3 non-profit arts education organization, the Philadelphia Folksong Society, and has served as the primary fund raising event.
Volunteering for the Philadelphia Folk Festival is a tradition that so many look forward to year after year. Lifelong friends have been made through volunteering at Fest. There are even multiple generations of families serving as Festival Volunteers!
